I'm a strong athiest, I can tell you right now, the reason for my beliefs... or lack there of is because I read the Bible. Separation of church and state! It's a government funded school system, whith children of various backgrounds attend. Shoving Bible lessons down their throats is nothing short of brainwash.The danger in teaching the Bible is that this book has the power to create faith even in an atheist. If it is allowed to be taught there is a strong possibility someone could be converted to Jesus Christ. Under the current world views is it possible to allow such a powerful tool for good to be taught in public schools and that before the young minds of the future?
'Ok, little Bobby. Fear the lord or you'll burn in hell for eternity.'
open your eyes, people.
